It may be just the way you explain it, but I don't really understand 
what the problem is.  Tomcat will "naturally" (without even having to 
add anything to the basic configuration) return the content of a text 
file, if it is in the right place and the link on your page points to 
it.  That is maybe why you do not find anything on Google about it : 
because it is not an issue and never was.
(It is also unusual to talk about "streaming" for a text file).

So what have you tried to do and what does not work, and how does it not 
work ?
Oh, and maybe provide some details about your Tomcat version and so on.
